Kim Min-Jae is expected to leave Napoli in the summer transfer window and it seems that he is heading to Manchester United.
Yesterday, we covered a story (via Corriere dello Sport) stating that the South Korean will move to Old Trafford once United have agreed a fee worth £50m with the Italian champions.
Today, the renowned media outlet have covered another story (press image provided below) to delight the Red Devils supporters.
CdS claim Kim is waiting for the transfer “window to open”, then he will “fly” to join Manchester United in a deal worth 58 million euros i.e. £50m.
It is stated that funds from the sale of the 26-year-old center half will be used to by a replacement. The Serie A champions are targeting the signing of Scalvini from Atalanta.
The international transfer window will open from July 01 and Min-Jae has a release clause in his Napoli contract valid from July 01 to July 15.
So, if reports are to be believed then the former Fenerbahce central defender should strengthen Erik ten Hag’s backline for the next campaign.
Manchester United shot stopper, David De Gea, has won the Golden Glove this season but he needs more quality and depth in the defense to further support him at the back next season.
Kim has arguably been the best defender in the Italian league this season and in all competitions, he has helped the team keep twenty clean sheets.
